Best Product Information Management (PIM) Software in 2018

Supporting warehouse and stock managers, product information management software (PIMS) largely consists of inventory type databases of products and parts along with descriptions, metrics and identification data for each item. PIMS helps to acquire, edit, maintain, manage and publish this data. Automated data collection from databases can enrich existing entries with media files and updated / corrected information. Additionally, many products support batch-processing for localization, classification or rebranding. Advanced Product Information Management software applications support filtering for duplicates, wording suggestion features, variant source management (like ERPs, printed materials and online files), crawling practices, writing style harmonization features and channel adaptation. Many PIM software products today display quality and completeness indicators as visual aids for marketers to help increase customer conversions.
